I would suggest writing a simple vbs (like MsgBox "Hello") and put that in the one of the custom action and see if the display comes.
I was able to run vbs ok.

What's the error message, if any? If there is no visual indication, you may want to generate and analyze your installation log for clues. If the custom actions do not appear in the log, you will want to make sure they are indeed scheduled in the sequence.
